Compact Metal Mountable UHF RFID Tag on a Barium Titanate Based Substrate
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 26, 43-57, 2012
Abstract
The development of a compact metal mountable Radio-Frequency IDentification (RFID) tag antenna on a ceramic substrate based on Barium Titanate is presented. The performance limitations and design trade-offs of metal mountable RFID tag antennas are reviewed and the favorable features of a high-permittivity antenna substrate for the development of antennas for metal mountable RFID tags are discussed. The simulation-based tag antenna design process is outlined and the measured read range of the developed metal mountable tag on conductive platforms of various sizes is presented.
